OneDrive is pathetically slow with uploads. For at least the last two weeks, it's been closer to dial up speeds. It can take hours to upload 500 meg. Historically, I haven't seen uploads faster than very low broadband speeds. I have a decent broadband connection - can stream HD movies and do other things simultaneously. I'm truly sick of it. What's more amazing...I'M A PAYING CUSTOMER. I'm not just using the free version. I would expect slower speeds if I were only using the free version. But to pay money and get this, pitiful.
We are focused on performance of the client across various scenarios: new files, file edits, initial sync. We’ve made numerous improvements over the course of the past year and have additional work planned in this area.
Verrrrry slow, uploading all night, still only 25% done>>>I havee 750Mbs upload speed.

And soon they will have the Pentagon contract. I can picture the soldiers on the battlefield now watching the spinning circle as mortars rain down. I gotta agree with just about everyone, MS makes ****, and then denies it is **** and never fixes said ****. I still cannot get desktop windows to remember the last size. I still cannot get Outlook 365 to not lock up the main program because I am editing an email in a separate window. I still cannot get outlooks search to find anything in my contacts or "People" as MS calls it. I have hated MS since 1995 it's clear they NEVER will pull their heads out of their ....

SLow, Slow, SLoooooowwww. This service is for slow conections, like the ones we used in late 90s, your sync, and upload speeds are good for uploading 10Mb or so, but never use this onedrive for 100Mb, ill take for ever..
ITS DOWNLOAD SPEED IS ONLY 50KB/S!!! IN CHINA! WINDOWS CLIENT!
Sooo slow times out all the time when uploading. Dont think i will re pay for a second year. Very unusable product.

Me too, both my personal and enterprise account, max upload speed is limited to 3,2 MB/s while my connection can go up to 30 MB/s.
Enterprise and paid personal user here.
Speeds are being limited at around 2.8MB/s over my gigabit fibre connection at home.
Can we have an update from the Microsoft product team?
Or should we all escalate through support services?
Are you kidding me? The upload/download speed is ridiculous. I can't believe I've payed for this service. And the Admin's response is simply comic, seeing that it's been more than 2 years since the first complaint. You are not focused on fixing anything, you are just ignoring your customers.

Dropbox already has fast upload speeds, so I just use them. You guys are late to the party.
Currently I'm getting good upload speeds from Brazil, like 10 up to 30MB/s
I can't believe that statement. I feel severely frustrated and disappointed with this service.

MS either hasn't focused on it as they suggested they were or they are just incompetent. OneDrive synchronization, whether it's just the directory or the actual files, is unacceptably slow. Period. Wish I had stayed with DropBox.
I will often copy the exact same files or folder to both OneDrive and Dropbox and Dropbox is consistently 2-3 times faster than OneDrive in syncing/uploading files. I use OneDrive only because my employer has a subscription, if I were buying my own storage I'd choose something else. Please make OneDrive faster.
If your company is planning to implement Onedrive as a replacement cloud storage solution, I have one suggestion. Hire alot more people to handle the volume of support tickets for OneDrive's daily clunkiness. We made that mistake, and I offer you a warning from the other side before you step over the precipice into ****.
Does Microsoft even read this forum? Probably not!!
I am just synchronizing the tree structure (Files on-demand) in mac os catalina and even so, a tree with approximatly 100.000 files are taking forever (Weeks) to replicate.
Just impossible to use!!!
PS - I use a business account (School account)
We need your urgent attention here, MS!!
I am over limit at OneDrive so I decided to download all of my files to NAS. Unfortunately downloading from OneDrive is more than 100 (hundred) times slower than from other external (web) servers.....I am leaving MS and I totaly switch to iCloud and local NAS. GoodBy MS- and do not forget "to work on that" :-) You are burning my money....I do not want it anymore.....
It's slow in comparing to your competitor google drive, I tried with one drive business it was 1.5 M/s , but with google drive on same network it was 30 M/s, Why???
EAT A **** ADMIN!
YOU'RE NOT WORKING ON THIS AT ALL!
ALSO THERE IS A RAMPANT ISSUE WITH INVALID CHARACTERS ON ONEDIVE. ADDING A SPACE TO A FILE NAME IS NOT AN INVALID CHARACTER
THROTTLING A 27KB EXCEL FILE FOR 4HR BECAUSE OF YOUR ***** SERVER LOAD IS NOT ACCEPTABLE FOR ENTERPRISE PRICING.
I HAVE A 1GB UPLOAD AND ONEDIVE DESPITE BEING SET TO UNLIMITED UPLOADS AT A STEADY 1OO KBPS WHAT THE ACTUAL **** IS GOING ON!
Can we please get an update on this? I got a new PC for xmas and it's now over a week later and my 300gb worth of files/documents are still syncing. I'm only at 60gb out of 300! The sync speed is using about 5% of my available bandwidth on average. It's really pathetic. Yes all the settings are correct, etc etc.
Onedrive sync performance is really poor.
Why does it feel like if one file is changed locally OneDrive feels it needs to scan the entire local drive to work out what has changed?
I know it does this as have sat watching the never ending Processing changes and used the sysinternals procmon utility to see what the OneDrive app is doing only to find it skipping through every folder on disk.
AV software does a good job of what files are being written to disk in realtime, maybe OneDrive could use the same Windows API that detects files being written to disk to and only upload the file that had changed. Just an idea.
When is Microsoft going to throw some money in the direction of the OneDrive development team and code the OneDrive app properly?
